Dang! If I had just paid attention to the QUESTION the Quiz was asking (as in both) I would've done better.

I do know the Flintstones came on Friday Nights (before Friday Night Fights) because that's how the adults got hooked on it.

But wow, for the others, had no idea both were similar.

Interesting, were you surprised so many answers were "both" like I was?
Yes, I sure was...

Guilty as charged.
Here is what I did know: "Disorder in the Court" was an early Three Stooges short, and one of their best, IMO. It was done in 1936.

That's the one where Curly can't testify because he can't raise his hand and hold his hat at the same time...LOL!!!

Fine program! On a side note-Curly flipped the middle finger in this episode!
